Happy New Year!
This year, I want something different. I want 2015 to be a year of value, a year of building strong, lasting memories. This year, I want my resolutions to become a part of my lifestyle, not simply another chore that I abandon two weeks in.
I've compiled a short list of my New Year's Resolutions for 2015. I hope to look back next year and say, "I've bettered my life and the lives of those around me by making and implementing these resolutions."

This year, though, I really want to jump in wholeheartedly and pour my soul into this blog.
Without you, dear reader, this blog would be nothing. Because of this, I want to give more to you. I intend to give you more of what you want this year, including more relevant content, more recipes, more engagement, more awesome product reviews, and more giveaways!
Remain on the track to a healthy lifestyles.
Last year ended on a high note in regards to my health, thanks to the AdvoCare 24-Day Challenge and this year, I want to keep it up. I want to continue exercising, watching my portions, and drinking more water. I want my body to reflect my health.
Let it go!
One thing I did too much of last year was hold grudges. Usually, I'm pretty good at moving past petty issues but for some reason, last year proved difficult in that aspect. This year, I want to learn to forgive quickly. I want to savor every moment, so to speak, without tainting it with negativity. I want peacpea
